Kookumber Project #2

Kookumber Project Update.

- The Hollow Redwood Kookumber is in the glassing process. Greg Martz laminated it late last week.

- I passed off the chambered balsa blank to Griffin yesterday so he could finish shaping it. (Not before ensuring that the tail was at least 2 shakas wide)

Surfing Newport in the 1960's

Bill, pictured below, just picked up a hollow redwood fish from the shop to hang on his wall, next to his balsa longboard.

He sent me this photo yesterday.

Thanks Bill.

Return of the Smart Brothers

We're working out a date to have the Smart Brothers come back again this summer... stay tuned... get stoked.

Forgot to post about these when they came in... we have a variety of Ahoy board bags in stock!

They make really good board bags, and really bad ghost costumes.

Balsa Kookumber

I'm embarking on a new project. I want to build a kookumber in as many different surfboard constructions as I can. My Dad and I will be working together on this project, and probably Griffin at times as well. But since the kookumber is our most unique looking board (and one of my personal favorites), I want to explore and see how many different ways we can construct one.

We've already done plenty of them with regular foam and fiberglass. We just did a hollow redwood one. Now we're working on a chambered balsa one. Next maybe a recycled Marko EPS blank with entropy resin? Or a composite sandwich board? Only time will tell.

Here's the fully chambered balsa blank for new 5'4.

Here's a recent self-portrait by our good friend, Kyle Lightner, posted up with his entire arsenal of equipment that he uses to create his images.

(If you're wondering about the strange blog title, sound it out. If you still don't have a clue what I was going for, sound it out and imagine you're crocodile dundee.)

Grain Surfboards

Got to catch up with Mike LaVecchia from Grain Surfboards this weekend at the Sacred Craft.

Super great guy, and one of my earliest inspirations in surfboard building.

I have a tremendous amount of respect for the work Mike and the crew do.

Here's a photo of Scotty Stopnik doing a layback on a Grain fish during his visit to Maine last year.
